In 1982 Dr. Proffitt began practicing dentistry here in Maryville with two other established dentists. After five years he took over the practice and began making improvements eventually leading to the construction of the office that he continues to use today. "My wife and I enjoy time together in Maryville, participating in sports, community affairs and church activities. We also have two sons who are becoming successful young men. I have family members in the area, so this community has been my home throughout my life. I'm thankful for the opportunities I've had, the people I've come to know and all the challenges I've been able to accomplish."
